I’m still in the process of trying to rent Soul Calibur V (c’mon Plurent! Hurry up!), but so far I’ve heard not so great things about it. The story mode is supposedly lackluster, and I don’t understand why it’s gone backwards in terms of quality over the years.
But one thing the game does do right is its fantastic character creator that allows you to literally create absolutely anyone under the sun from any movie, show or other game title. They’re not exact replicas obviously, but given the tools you have to work with, it’s pretty amazing how many recognizable characters you can bring to life.
There’s a full gallery of some of the best ones below, taken from here, and I can imagine myself spending hours playing around with this instead of fighting.
Mai, Cammy, Chun Lie, Starfox, Abe Lincoln and more on the next page.
